SATURDAY February 18
“AHR long run Saturday”
Please add 1-2 miles to your most recent longest run…Make it AHR (relaxed, easy and very conversational) for all but the final 3 miles (2 miles for 5K-10K crew). For those last 3 miles, run 6 x half mile at your targeted pace with a 1 minute jog in between each. 5K-10K folks should try to run their half mile segments at 10 mile pace (not 5K-10K).
Rolling course please.
Practice your hydration and nutrition regimen on these long AHR runs.
***Attention those running The Park to Park Half or any other 13.1 mile race later this spring:
I’d like to see you ultimately get your long run up into the 15-17 mile range.
